On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien traveled to Pueblo West and Colorado Springs to teach elementary students about severe weather in Colorado.
First, she met with the 2nd graders at Liberty Point Elementary in Pueblo West. The students loved learning the weather dance.
Then she went to Trailblazer Elementary to speak with Mrs. Matonich's 3rd-grade class. They made their own 7-day forecast today and are going to watch the weather to see if their predictions come true.
